The history of the alpine guides in Italy began with the birth of alpinism in the Dolomites. Its protagonists were explorers from England, Germany, Austria and local mountain guides of Trentino. The mountain guide' s profession in Italy has been subject to changes and development. Until the end of the 18th century they were the mountain guides of rich aristocrats keen on granting their name to a famous peak or wall. The modern alpine guide however, is a professional with not only a profound knowledge of the manifold traditional and modern alpine mountaineering techniques but is also an expert in nature, culture and history. In those days and at present, the mountain guides are the authors of Italian and international alpine history. The Trentino Alpine Guide Association in Italy is preparing the mountain guides for their professional life. In Trentino 250 alpine guides are registered; they are being distributed among 12 alpine schools and/or other types of mountain guide' s associations. Practically in each valley of Trentino in Italy you can find an association of mountain guides which can provide information and advice. The alpine schools or mountain guide' s associations are offering a vast range of activities and courses which can be booked directly. With a mountain guide on your side, a day in the mountains, a simple excursion through the forests of our National Parks or a climbing tour in the Dolomites, will become an unforgettable experience. The alpine guides of Arco Trentino are publishing an annual program offering daily or weekly excursions/events which are suitable for everyone who has already been in the mountains but is mainly addressing those who want to make first contact with them. The program includes excursions, trekking tours, rock climbing trips, via ferrata course, high alpine treks, freeclimbing or excursions in the National Parks with special park Mountain Guides.

All of our collaborators of our alpine climbing school Arco are officially (UIAGM) licensed alpine guides with international diploma and are officially registered with the regional and national Alpine Guides Association. With no exception they are bound by law to have a third party indemnity insurance.

BRENTA TREK With our proposal of the Brenta Trek Italy, we would like to offer a 5 days trekking trip from lodge to lodge crossing from the South to the North, the entire Brenta Dolomites Italy Group, with overnight stay in the mountain lodges, suitable for everybody. The participants only need to have a good physical condition and some experience in hiking trips in the mountains.

VIA FERRATA COURSE This via ferrata course at Lake Garda Italy is destined for people who love trekking or mountain walks, and for whom who would like to try themselves in the vertical world in complete safety. The rock climbing experience of this day is very important for the performance of our via ferrata courses and trips. The next two days we will climb the most beautiful via ferratas in the Lake Garda Italy area.

VIA FERRATA BRENTA DOLOMITES ITALY The offer of the mountaineering School Lake Garda consists of the Crossing of Brenta Dolomites Italy from North to South in five or three days with overnight stay in the alpine lodges. The layer conformation of the rocks in the Brenta Dolomites permits the access to the many ledges which are cutting the big walls transversely. On these ledges are running the via ferrata delle Bocchette, from one pass to another, across the entire Brenta Dolomites Italy Group. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges

MARMOLADA DOLOMITES The top of Marmolada Dolomites is the famous and the via ferrata on the Western Crest is a dream of many mountaineers like the "Normal route" of Mont Blanc. The via ferrata on the crest of Marmolada is classified as difficult but as always the difficulty at high altitude depends on the environmental conditions which can vary extremely in the Dolomites. Obviously for this type of via ferrata trip it is necessary to have a good physical condition and sometimes even the use of the rope is necessary.

TREKKING KALYMNOS GREECE Every time we are fascinated by the views, wildness and solitude of this territory. On Kalymnos Island in Greece we can hike many hours meeting only goats or take a swim in a solitary bay. The program of our Trekking hiking School Arco lake Garda Italy consists of five days hiking on the Island and one day is destined for an easy rock climbing experience or rest. We sleep in the best hotel on the Island and we will choose the most traditional good restaurant. We will make possible the best trekking vacation come true, not only in Greece!

ALPINE COURSE This alpine base course is destined for people who love hiking, trekking and via ferrata trips but would like to extend their knowledge in the rocks and on glaciers. The program of our mountaineering course consists of two days rock climbing in the crags near Lake Garda Italy and following we move for three days to the Marmolada Dolomites Alps. The teaching regards climbing techniques in every mountaineering situation, rope manouvres, rappelling and self rescue exercises on the rocks and glaciers in the Alps of Italy. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges.

VIA FERRATA COURSE The Brenta Dolomites group is similar to the more famous Eastern Dolomites but the rock walls and pillars there are bigger, the environment harder and wilder therefore less touristic and more alpine. Through these multicolor fantastic walls runs the famous track of "Via ferrata Bocchette del Brenta" which is ideal to exercise our via ferrata courses and trips in the Brenta Dolomites. This course is destined for people who have a little experience in high mountains or via ferrata or for very athletic and adventurous participants. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges.
